    I normally buy north face products as a necessity for work since I work outdoors 180 plus days a year in hot weather and freezing weather as a forestry surveyor. The lightest north face shoe I wear is the gore tex hedge hog trail runner as a necessity because of harsh wet terrain, but I was looking for a nice every day summer/hot weather trainer and I found the ultra kilowatt trainer to be a perfect shoe for every day use. I live in El Paso Tx and Chicago both have nasty summer s chicago is hot and humid and El Paso is just plain hot. These shoe are very breathable lightweight and comfortable, I train 4 time a week and this is only shoe I need at the gym but this shoe goes beyond the gym this shoe looks good is comfortable and very well ventilated, this is all I wear lately I had a chance to put these though some boulder hopping and craig climbing at Hueco Tanks this weekend and they were just flawless. The shoe kept my feet cool and dry. I highly recommend this shoe for training and hot weather and light hiking.

    I purchased the Ultra Kilowatt gray/zinnia size 10 on July 20th, received them July 25th and started wearing them the next day. Thought I had found the perfect shoe for light hikes...but after about 10 treks I noticed the fabric was starting to tear where it meets the rubber toe guard. Very disappointed in this product. Never have I had a shoe fall apart after 10 wearings. Unexceptionable North Face.

      Comments about TheNorthFace MEN’S ULTRA KILOWATT TRAINER:

      I swooned over these shoes for weeks before convincing myself (and my wife) they were worth $120. They are very comfortable shoes and the grip from the Vibram sole is great. However, the mesh upper is junk. After owning these for three months, with a normal amount of wear on them, I can see my sock through holes where the now shredded mesh meets the toe cap. I would not suggest paying $120 for these shoes. Dissatisfied.

      The soles promote full foot activity and give an athletic feel. I work as a personal trainer and these are great for 8 hours on your feet demonstrating different exercises. Only a few weeks old but they seem like solid training sneakers.

        I don't really use this shoes for any training just for casual walking and I noticed I rip on the mesh in front of the shoe. I own many northface shoes but this is the first time that an almost new shoes got ripped easily.

        I bought these to replace my New Balance Minimalists. At first they felt a little tight but after loosening them up and wearing for a few days, they're perfect. Good tread and breathe well. I'd buy again for sure.

        This shoe is awesome. It is a minimalistic type which allows for the foot itself to work out during training. It has great tread and performs perfectly.
